Summary of project Three Medical students attended our event. Two of them were 4th years and the other a 1st year. About 30 of my members attended this event which lasted about 2 hours (we weren't sure if we would use all the time, but we did). My Associate Director was the one who contacted the Medical students. (Thank you Joyce). The Med students spoke about classes, dissections, financial aid, study habits, interviews, MCAT, and their most memorable experiences when they were undergrads and when they began Medical school. All of our members enjoyed the Panel and they left the room with a more confident outlook towards Medical School. We had refreshments at the end for everyone.
